Girls Football Sessions with Southend United FC.
Every Thursday this term, Mrs Smith of the PE Dept. and Head of Year 7, has been delighted to welcome community coaches from Southend United FC to help run Girls Football training sessions for Years 7 and 8.
On Thursday 9 November 2017 to celebrate Girls Football Week, the coaches were joined by two current Southend United first team players Simon Cox and Michael Kightly. After taking a Questions and Answers session from the students, both players captained a team in a match against each other.
Members of the FA and BBC Look East were also on hand to watch the session, which took place alongside the building of the school's new 3g pitch, which is due for completion in February 2018.
BBC Look East showed footage of the session during their Breakfast and Evening News the following day, and pictures and a short video were tweeted at https://twitter.com/Beauchampssch/.
